Hello members,

I found this site by following a link on Bob's sig from another forum. I'm happy to have found it!

I live in Rochester, been riding most of my 34 years (zero accidents), took and will continue to take the experienced driver's courses.

I have 2 bikes right now:
Scooter: 2006 Reflex 250, K-mod, smoked corners, HID low. Used mostly for commute to school, I get over 65 mpg regardless how hard I beat it. It does 85 easily 2-up and is freeway legal. I have some mods for it to be installed this winter including a taller final drive. Goal is to be able to hit 100, so I can easily cruise at 70-75.

Cruiser: 2007 Suzuki Boulevard M109R, dropped the rear almost 3", shaved signals and replaced with LED strips, HID, working on bar end mirrors, red LEDs (which I can only use while parked :/ ) - none of the mods are in these pics, though, as I barely rode it last season. I had a power commander and other electronic gizmotry, but took it off, too much power made it hard to feather around in traffic. I don't need to go too fast, and this bike is stupid fast as it is.

Thanks guys!

I have washed the Suzuki twice in 4000 miles, and i have never washed the scoot, ever. Seriously! I wipe with one of Bobs phat towels and a quick detailer spray every once in awhile, thats it.

But i promise that will change now that i have much more time on my hands (ex-chrysler employee ;) )

so right now im in Paris , it is cold as hell (detroit), and there are tons of people on scoots and bikes. Makes me really want to take one of mine out soon... Im so jonesing to ride!

Welcome...
one of my sons teammates(football) Dad had that same bike in the Pearl color - the pics dont do it justice in my opinion - I don't normally like white, but that is the perfect color IMO
Very Nice

Thanks guys!

I was in Paris, definitely the Paris with the nice G-String! I was there for the weekend with the GF... No Royal with Cheese, but I did get one as soon as I got on the road from DTW back home. I only saw one McD's (and one Starbucks) in downtown Paris, and the GF would not entertain the idea of eating anywhere but a true French restaurant or Cafe! There is quite a variety of restaurants, though, all expensive :(

Back now, looking at the scoot and planing mods ;)

oh hell yeah! Even cold, the place is awesome. People were much more friendly than I expected, the metro is great, architecture (especially if you like churches) is beyond words. I got to see work from Monet, Van Gogh, Degas, etc, all the important works at the Louvre... legs and feet are aching, but definitely worth it. Notre Dame should inspire even the most atheist. Definitely a trip that crosses out many items on my bucket list!

The place was PACKED! So many tourists, even in off season and very cold.



Then again, it is good to be back home :)
